BOSTON AREA, please REBLOG:
A Tribute to Becca Rosenthal: A Night of Music, Art and Remembering will be happening Monday October 7th at 7pm at the beautiful Somerville Theater.
as most of you know, we lost our friend becca last year for reasons unknown. i wrote a long blog about her HERE: http://amandapalmer.net/blog/20121027/. she was a big part of our lives and the dresden dolls community.
her parents reached out to me and neil to see if we would help signal boost the scholarship fund they’re trying to start over at smith college, becca’s alma mater. they need to raise a lot of money in a small amount of time to get it legitimately rolling. we decided it would be a good idea to get all becca’s boston-area posse together to throw an event in her honor.
the night will be presented by me, brian viglione (of the dresden dolls and the violent femmes :), mr neil gaiman, and tons of art/filmmaker/performer friends of becca’s, including michael pope, cormac bride, emilyn brodsky, siena oristaglio, and cassandra long…the list goes on. the whole night will be a celebration of becca’s life and the art and music she loved. we will play songs, show clips, share stories and remember her together. if you didn’t know her, you should still come. you’ll get to know her. and she was awesome. you’d have wanted to know her.
seats are $25, with a limited number of Gold Circle seats for $100. Gold Circle seats include an after-show meet and greet, plus cassandra long’s original, limited edition art poster (still in the making) signed by the performers.
ALL proceeds are to benefit The Rebecca Samay Rosenthal ‘07 Memorial Fellowship Fund at Smith College.
the venue holds about 900. please buy in advance.
Tickets are available here from this Friday, September 6th, at 10am EDT
